Spontaneous (2020)

Ending / spoiler

(2 votes)

Mara drinks a lot at the combined prom / graduation party, then walks to Dylan's grave and lies on it. Dylan's mother soon comes and joins her. They talk about life (e.g, how "it sucks", things happening for no reason, etc.) and Mara says she doesn't know what to do. Dylan's mom asks if she'd like to come to dinner next week. She briefly smiles but returns to crying. Mara arrives home after daybreak. Her parents waited up all night worrying and were relieved when Mara got home safe/alive. In the next scene, Mara (with suitcases) is leaving home in Dylan's truck. Her parents ask her to "call a lot" and she says she will. It isn't clear where Mara is going, but it might be the beach house (alone) or to college. During the drive, Mara (narrating) has a rather long rant about what she is going to do or be in life, how "life sucks", and how things happen for no apparent reason - she could die today, and so could you... nothing anyone can do about it. It is up to the individual to make the best of life - go for it.


Continuity mistake: Mara's hair is inconsistent during the prom - the length and tightness of curls varies a few times. Most noticeably, the sides of her hair sometimes only reach her shoulders but other times look three or four inches longer (and this is not merely due to loosening of her curls).

Trivia: FBI Special Agent Rosetti responded to Mara's joke - "It could be worse, right? We could be Republicans" - by saying, "That was funny." Republicans probably don't agree and viewers favoring various political parties might not "get" the joke. Basically, New Jersey (movie's setting) has been a "Democratic trifecta" for about the last thirty (30) years (since 1992). (Ha Ha?). (00:29:07)
